A delightful listen. While at first blush it seems a fluffy chick-lit, there is a really engaging story here! I really liked all the characters. They were fun and quirky, my favorite sort!
Sophie is a delight, she is the sort of character that your like immediately. Her interactions with her ghost Marmaduke is fascinating. It is an interesting dynamic that flows throughout the books.
Cal is easy to like, even when he has a moment where you think the worst of him. I enjoyed their interactions and the slow build to romance. This is one of those times when the relationship builds even though they have an instant connection.
The story is an enjoyable read but not a lot of action. The pace is steady and the lack of action doesn't take away for the story. It is more of a sweet read with a touch of drama. Sometimes I like a quick read that isn't overly taxing.
It is all a single narrative, only Sophie's POV. This is not a problem, but it does limit how a reader views events. I will say this style suited the story very well.
No steam here. It is a nice romance that doesn't get smexy. A few sweet kisses is as hot as it gets.
I listened to the audiobooks and the narrator Nan McNamara is lovely. She has a nice tone and a quick pace. I love that she has clear concise voices, this is important because there are many time when dialogue is delivered character to character. I never had a doubt who was speaking. She is very well suited to the story.
According to Goodreads this is the first book in a series, I hope we hear more from this group. I am very interested in the support group. They could be fodder for many books to come.

Sophia Rhodes has a ghostly problem, two to be exact. One night, when her boyfriend cheated on her with her friend, Sophia met her ghostly companion, Marmaduke Dodsworth. Because of this, finding another job has been extremely difficult. Going against the advice of Marmi, Sophia takes a job as a receptionist for Dr. Callahan, aka “Cal,” who also has a ghostly companion, Moonflower. All seems to be going well except for one thing; Moonflower has a severe case of green-eyed jealousy and keeps driving Cal’s clients away. When Mrs. Wiley, another client who’s a medium, tells Sophia that Moonflower is a ghost as a result of some witchcraft gone awry, the trio team up to end Moonflower’s tirades. Will they succeed?
The characters are well-developed, entertaining, and engaging. The dynamic between them is hilarious and fun to listen about. The plot is well-developed and, despite initial feels of a fluffy chick-lit, turns into a suspenseful, intense story despite lack of action. The clean romance is also believable and realistic despite the ghostly problems.
Narrator, Nan McNamara does a great job of bringing this delightful listen to life. Her use of different voices brings the author’s unique characters to life and makes them easily distinguishable. She easily switches between different voices and internal dialogue and smoothly handles plot transitions with ease. Her nice tone and pacing are well-suited for the book. People who like chick-lit, ghosts, mysteries, and clean romance will enjoy listening to this book.
